About Hall County

Hall County's unique history - dramatically different from the South's traditional plantation culture yet distinctly Southern in its own way - is as rich and varied as a colorful tapestry. Hall was founded in 1818, when the region's mountains were still populated by Native Americans, as the trading center of Northeast Georgia. Gainesville, its seat, soon became a frontier boom town as settlers flocked to homesteads in the rolling hills formerly inhabited by Cherokee Indians. With the discovery of gold in Lumpkin and White counties to the north in 1829, Gainesville became the trading and supply center for North America's first gold rush. While miners left for California in the mid-1800s, North Georgia continued to develop as a farming region with Gainesville as its hub. While Hall's population has grown 40% since 1990, it continues to build on its historic base as the primary center of Northeast Georgia: its banking and financial center; the regional seat of the Federal Court; the health center, with more than 300 physicians and the region's largest major hospital; the educational center, with Brenau University, the University of North Georgia, Lanier Technical College, Riverside Military Academy, 2 public school systems and several prominent private schools; the sports center, with headquarters of the Atlanta Falcons, Road Atlanta, Olympic rowing and canoe / kayak facilities, several championship golf courses and dozens of public parks and camping areas; the arts center, with a wealth of cultural organizations, societies, groups and clubs. Uniquely Southern, rich in history but constantly evolving and progressing, Hall County offers both newcomers and long-time residents a superb environment unmatched anywhere in the world.
